Wellington Place, Leeds
Contact: Charlotte Best
Fulfilling the role of Travel Plan Coordinator at a large business estate in the office quarter of Leeds.
Wellington Place is an office led development located in Leeds city centre.
Fore was initially engaged by MEPC to review the 2015 Master Travel Plan for Wellington Place, providing an update on its status and suggesting enhanced travel plan measures to encourage and enable sustainable travel to the site. Fore was appointed as site-wide Travel Plan Coordinator to oversee the implementation of the Travel Plan in 2017, with Charlotte Best of Fore taking over this role in March 2020.
Fore works closely with the marketing team and estate management to roll-out new measures to encourage and facilitate sustainable travel. So far, discounted bus travel, free bike hire, and regular bike maintenance sessions have been organised in an effort. In addition, events and communications are regularly planned to promote the new measures and increase uptake including hosting an annual Clean & Green festival and the development of a bike facilities poster and video, walking and cycling maps and a ‘how to use Park & Ride’ infographic.
Fore has assisted Wellington Place in becoming accredited by the West Yorkshire Combine Authority and City Connects’ Walk Friendly Workplace and Bike Friendly Business schemes in recognition of initiatives, facilities and pro-active approach towards walking and cycling.
There is also ongoing liaison between the Travel Plan Coordinator with occupier companies of Wellington Place, Leeds City Council ITB team, the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and other third parties such as public transport operators to discuss future measures.
“We are really pleased to welcome Fore to the team and we intend to utilise their travel expertise to make the daily commute a little greener for Wellington Place occupiers. We are especially looking forward to introducing some exciting new transport initiatives in the coming months.”
Dominique Simcox, Marketing Manager, Wellington Place.
